For Seton Hall, focus now shifts to Swedish power forward Billy Magarity Jr.

FIBA EUROPE / SEBASTIAN MONTAG

After the recruiting equivalent of a blown save in Blaise Mbargorba choosing Boston University over Seton Hall yesterday, the staff needs to ramp up their pressure on several forward targets.

The short-term focus will now shift to reeling in 2013 Swedish power forward Billy Magarity Jr., who is currently visiting Boston College and slated to trip to Philadelphia later this week to experience Temple. The 6-foot-11, 225-pound Magarity was in South Orange for a visit on Sunday and Monday, according to Jerry Carino. Oregon State, USC, Northwestern and Baylor have also been said to have shown interest in Billy, who plays for Sweden's u-20 team and has played for various club teams in Sweden as an amateur.

If Seton Hall fails to receive a commitment from Magarity, the pressure to land 2014 forward Quadri Moore of Linden (N.J.) will only increase. As it stands, the Pirates have just one true center on their roster for the 2014-15 season with Aaron Geramipoor and Gene Teague set to depart next spring. Linden head coach Phil Colicchio proclaimed last month that Seton Hall is doing a "fantastic job" recruiting Quadri.

This 2010 Philly.com article on Magarity gives an insightful amount of information on Billy and his father, also Billy, who was Catholic League North MVP in 1971.

Here are two long highlight tapes of Magarity in action. Magarity is rated 23rd by DraftExpress.com on their list of Top International Prospects born in 1993.

If you missed it last week, Seton Hall will host Kent State in Newark on November 13th. The game will be one of the two "campus site" games that are a part of the 2013 Coaches vs. Cancer Classic.
